  • 1. tracing
    I have a crude floor plan that is 25yrs old with written markings. I inserted it and want to trace the walls to create a clean drawing. Can someone please give a brief description of the tools and commands I would use to do this? I realize I may be asking for the impossible, but I think If I had the right visio vocabulary, I might be able to do this without buying another 50 dollar book. thanks for all attempts!

  • 3. Copying Visio to Word at 100%
    I am working with Visio 2003 I find that when I paste Visio drawings into Word they don't paste in at the same size as the drawing itself IOW, I have a 9 x 5 drawing in Visio that I want to appear in Word as the same size. It pastes in fine but when I go to Format Picture it appears as 75%. This is an example. I adjust this is Page Setup perfectly (I think!) Am I missing something obvious Thanks.
  • 4. How to create a visio page template?
    How to create a visio page template? I created a visio template for design of business process. Each process initially has two pages, a foreground and a background. Trough the building of the flowchart I need then to insert new pages with specific format and shapes inside. Is it possible to insert template pages into an existent template drawing?
  • 5. Copying Visio drawings to Word in Office 2003
    Hello all. Recently I've encountered a problem with Visio objects' behavior in Word 2003. When I copy/paste anything from Visio to Word and then try to change it's properties - namely the text wrapping to "In front of text", the word document I am working on is getting messed up - visio object itself disappears, pages stop moving, I can not view the rest of the document, print preview does not even open, etc.. Reinstalling Office or/and Visio, Checking for errors, updates and such didn't resolve the issue. Uninstall and Install from scratch didn't help either. Both Visio and Word are the same version and SP. Frankly I don't know what else to do and am getting desperate. PLEASE HELP!

I got this to work perfectly by setting the fill transparency to 99% for the 
shapes that cover the area I want to be able to click on.  :)

1.Create invisible hot spots for links

I have a drawing with many links in various areas that open local files 
(pictures).  I would like to open the links by clicking on invisible 'hot 
spots' that cover the different areas of my drawing.  Attaching hyperlinks to 
rectangles I've postioned over the desired area works well, but if I try to 
make the shape transparent (no line, no fill) the hyperlink function doesn't 
work.  Does anyone have an idea of how I might do this?

2.Hot spots

Visio Pro 2002.  I would also like to set up 
my locations as hot spots rather than the custom properties.  Is it possible?

3.Linking objects between document pages: Resolved


That was my problem, I didn't realize there was a difference between the 
master stencil and the document stencil. Once I started using the document 
stencil from File>Stencils>Document Stencil I was able to get my changes to 
propagate through the entire document.  It makes so much more sense now.  

Thanks for your help,
